DISCOVERY OF THE EVA OKLAHOMA, STONY METEORITE

Name: EVA

Place of find: Eva, Texas County, Oklahoma. 36° 12'N, 101° 54'30"W.

Date of find: 1965 or 1966

Class and type: Stone. Chondrite.

Number of individual specimens: 1

Total weight: 7.6 kg

Circumstances of find: One fragment probably representing less than half of the original specimen was found lying in a gateway used to bring farm machinery into a yard. It had evidently been deposited there by roadbuilding equipment clearing out ditches and repairing the dirt road. It is assumed that the remaining parts of the stone are in the roadbed.
